Miranda
by Slowdive
This post was inspired by @bob's choice for today, which features a video of images from the original film of Picnic At Hanging Rock:

...which by coincidence I just happen to have finished reading. Actually, I watched the film again a couple of weeks ago and then a few days later I happened across a copy of the book, which I'd been wanting to read for years. Most of the prose style in the book is very straightforward, but in a way that's *almost* bad, skating quite close to the point of something you might have written at school. But then it skates away again with a beautiful turn of phrase that makes you think the writing is actually pretty good. The film has actually done a really good job of capturing this tone of the novel, I think, although some of the minor plot details have changed. Of course, the dreamy-hazy bit before the girls' disappearance is still the best bit, both in the film and in the novel.

I haven't seen the remake because I didn't see the point of it, has anyone else seen it?
